IMAX Enhanced has arrived. The first two titles, A Beautiful Planet and Journey to the South Pacific will dazzle you with their visuals and immersive sound.
Today marks the release of the first two IMAX Enhanced titles on Ultra HD Blu-ray disc. The debut consists of a pair of documentaries, “A Beautiful Planet” narrated by Jennifer Lawrence, and “Journey to the South Pacific” narrated by Cate Blanchett.
These two titles take advantage of IMAX 4K HD remastering and audio technologies from DTS to raise the bar in terms of the audio and video quality that you can experience at home. This includes digital video remastering for optimized contrast, vibrant color, and greater clarity.
According to the press release from DTS, audio for these titles utilizes a variant of the DTS:X codec that’s integrated into compatible IMAX Enhanced AV gear. The result is “immersive, powerful sound” that plays at its best in the carefully-tuned IMAX mode found on the Enhanced devices.
A Beautiful Planet and Journey to the South Pacific are just the first two titles to be announced and released; in the same press release DTS notes that additional IMAX Enhanced titles, as well as more news about IMAX Enhanced in general, will be announced at later dates.
